Bachelor’s in Economics


The Bachelor’s in Economics is designed by the LSE, awarded by the University of London and taught in small-class at Forward College campuses in 3 different European capitals.


Forward College Bachelor’s tuition programme includes:

  • 100% small group teaching (on average 15 students per class)
  • Weekly one-on-one tutoring for individualised feedback and guidance
  • Frequent evaluations to track your progress throughout the year and ensure your success at the final exams
  • Induction programme where you will better understand your learning style and adopt the most relevant learning methods for you
  • Gain a solid expertise in economics and quantitative methods for data analytics and data science 
  • Study questions ranging from how much of its income a household chooses to save and what goods it chooses to buy, to how all the households and businesses in the country interact to determine national output
  • Learn an approach to a logical analysis of social and individual decision making.

Economics opens a wide array of careers both in finance, universities, economic departments in government, central banks, and international organisations. Having completed their academic courses with practical skills-development and experience will offer them extended opportunities in startups, consulting firms, or bigger corporations. Central banks, governments, and other international organisations are other options for graduates in economics.

The building blocks of
the programme

The study of economics is an excellent first step for a professional career in business, research, or institutional administration. It also provides a broad basis for further studies in many areas within social sciences. Developed by LSE, this degree will give you a thorough grounding in the principles of individual decision-making, firm strategy, and the overall functioning of an economy.

As with all Bachelor’s Programmes designed by the LSE, students take four courses each year, made up of a combination of compulsory and elective classes.

NB: availability of courses depends on student interest, and not all of the below courses may be available for study during years 2 and 3. Some courses carry pre-requisites – please refer to the UoL course list for additional information. Please note that students select a maximum of 4 courses per year of study.

Before graduating from Forward College, we recommend students pursue an internship, whether for career exploration purposes or to gain practical, valuable, and much sought-after experience. For bachelor’s students, an internship is not mandatory, but is highly recommended.

An internship during college prepares you for the world of work and its challenges.

Expected working time: 6-8 weeks
